Apps for Traveling Smarter
CNBC.com | May 17, 2011 | 09:46 AM EDT

Whether you’re a leisure traveler or a corporate road warrior, you’ll find a wealth of mobile apps to help make your journeys more productive and enjoyable.

The problem is that there are so many of them—about 350,000, according to Henry Harteveldt, principal analyst at Forrester Research.

“If you’re a frequent traveler, you’re going to want applications that can help you improve your productivity, reduce your chance of delay or chance of stress, and help you maximize your enjoyment during your off hours,” Harteveldt says. “There’s no single application that can do [all] that. Some, such as those that track frequent flier or loyalty program account activity tend to be more popular with business travelers. But social media applications, entertainment applications and destination applications are really as relevant to leisure traveler as they are to business travelers.”

The apps highlighted below cover a wide range of needs, from booking a hotel to getting around town to getting work done.
